Global Trade Academy Launched By Amber Road
Amber Road, a provider in cloud-based global trade management solutions, has launched a comprehensive global trade management (GTM) training practice known as the Global Trade Academy.
As a result of the high demand for supply-chain talent and the time necessary to gain the desired expertise, global organizations face a constant search for ways to develop in-house talent. The Global Trade Academy seeks to fill that void, offering 60 courses ranging from Customs and trade compliance, to import and export management, global logistics, risk assessment and international commerce.
“Global trade management is a complex and dynamic field,” says Jim Preuninger, CEO of Amber Road. “Organizations require knowledgeable in-house trade professionals to understand trade regulations and implement global supply-chain strategies, particularly as it relates to their specific products, processes and geographies.”
With the impending supply-chain talent crunch, the Academy provides a platform for students to learn, think critically and problem solve in the world of global trade and international business. The desire to find professionals with the skills necessary to excel in supply-chain management are at an all time high. “That’s the need we fulfill,” says Suzanne Richer, director of Trade Advisory Practice at Amber Road. “I am very excited to join Amber Road to lead the launch of the Global Trade Academy.”
